The truth regarding the Atlantic City Boathouse, the Atlantic City Board of Education, the City of Atlantic City, and Stockton University has finally become self-evident.

We can now confirm that plans are currently in the works to transfer ownership of the Atlantic City Boathouse from the Atlantic City Board of Education to the City of Atlantic City.

Our earlier accurate reporting (link below) was called into question by Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small and Atlantic City Superintendent of Public Schools, La’Quetta Small.

Here is a copy of a letter from immediate past Superintendent Barry Caldwell, proving that the ACBOE advised Stockton University to leave the Atlantic City Boathouse, with Caldwell writing, “At this time, the Atlantic City School District is recommending that Stockton University find an alterative location for the crew program as soon as possible. The District is going to be expanding the use of the boathouse and will no longer able to accommodate your usage,” wrote Caldwell.

Here’s a copy of the entire Caldwell letter proving this undisputed fact.

Despite these undisputed facts, Mr. and Mrs. Small publicly questioned the veracity of our previous solid reporting.

Here is documentation proving that there is a plan to transfer ownership of the Atlantic City Boathouse to the City of Atlantic City.

This fact is incontrovertible and here it is in writing:

The above confirms that city ownership of “The Boathouse acquisition pending”

It never was about the school district's plan to use the boathouse more, which necessitated Stockton University being ousted.

It’s always been about something else. Multiple City sources (who are unwilling to allow us to release their names publicly for fear of political retaliation from The Smalls) advised that Marty Small wanted more availability of the boathouse for non-city, undisclosed reasons.

A Boathouse event schedule (for April thru June 2022) that took 14 days for Atlantic City Board of Education Member John Devlin to receive support on how few events are actually scheduled to be held at the Atlantic City Boathouse. Here is a copy of the schedule:

Marty and La’Quetta have been telling one story publicly. The well-documented facts tell quite a different story.
